Peking University (Chinese: 北京大学; abbreviated PKU or Beida) is a public research university in Beijing, China that is funded by the Ministry of Education of China. The university was established as the Imperial University of Peking in 1898 when it received its royal charter by the Guangxu Emperor. Throughout its history, Peking University has had an important role "at the center of major intellectual movements" in China. After the fall of the Qing dynasty and the Xinhai Revolution, its status as a royal institution was abolished. From the early 1920s, the university became a center for China's emerging, progressive, and republican movements. Faculty and students held important roles in originating the New Culture Movement, the May Fourth Movement protests, and other significant cultural and sociopolitical events, to the extent that the university's history has been closely tied to that of modern China. Peking University has educated and hosted many prominent modern Chinese figures, including Mao Zedong, Lu Xun, Gu Hongming, Hu Shih, Mao Dun, Li Dazhao, Chen Duxiu, and former Premier Li Keqiang.
